A number of years in the past, my buddy Liz invited a couple of women over to her condo, and I’ll always remember what occurred subsequent…
After we frolicked in her lounge consuming gooey cheese and a crusty baguette, she ushered us over to the eating desk. On every particular person’s plate was a small piece of paper. As we seemed extra intently, we realized she had written acrostic poems for every of us. If that sounds probably tacky or babyish, let me let you know: it was SO beautiful.
Here’s what mine stated:

All she is + cares for
How lovely is that?! I used to be actually touched. After I received dwelling, I taped it up in our kitchen, the place it has stayed for the previous 5 years. Every time I see it, I really feel a wave of affection for her and so grateful to be seen on this means.
Aren’t acrostic poems a beautiful — and straightforward — thought? Would you do that to your friends? I beloved it a lot.
P.S. A cocktail party dialog starter, and why am I simply discovering potlucks?
